Tickets on sale at Providence from today
Tickets for the first three matches of the Tri-Nation ODI series at Providence went on sale yesterday at the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) office at Bourda and will go on sale from 10:00hrs today at the Stadium.
International Cricket returns to Guyana for the first time in over three years since West Indies beat Pakistan by 37 runs at Providence in the second ODI of a five-match series.
On Friday June 3 West Indies face number three ranked South Africa, before facing five-time World Cup Champions and number one ranked Australia on Sunday June 5. Australia battle South Africa on Tuesday June 7. All the games are Day/Night encounters which commence at 13:00hrs. Gates open at 11:00hrs.
Although South Africa have played three ODIs in Guyana including the very first one at Providence in the 2007 World Cup, they have never played West Indies in Guyana.
Australia’s last ODI in Guyana was 17 years ago in 1999 when Steve Waugh made an unbeaten 72 in a game which ended in controversial tie when the crowd invaded the ground.
Tickets cost $2,000 for the Party Stand which will take over the entire Grass Mound with music and bars. The Orange stand cost $3,000, while the Red & Green Stands cost $4,000. Car passes cost $1,000 and there are no reserved tickets. Ticket holders will be seated on a ‘first come first served’ basis.
The International cricket games are a Jubilee bonus and visitors here for Guyana’s 50th Anniversary celebrations could extended their stay to see the matches and buy their ticket early. (Sean Devers)
